A Reporter Asks Gibbs Why Does Obama Leave "Creator" out of Declaration of Independence

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs being asked today why President Obama has, on two occasions (according to the reporter), publicly left the phrase endowed “by their Creator” out of his quoting of the Declaration of Independence. Reporter Lester Kinsolving asked Gibbs the question, and got one of Gibbs’ typical, arrogant non-answers. Gibbs responded that he can assure us that the President “believes in the Declaration of Independence.” But that’s not what he was asked?

Kinsolving then followed up by asking if President Obama’s recent assertion in a “Rolling Stone” interview that “Fox News is bad for the country” also applies to Talk Radio. Gibbs mocked Kinsolving by asking him if he is a “subscriber” to “Rolling Stone,” to the laughter of Gibbs’ lapdogs in the media. Kinsolving is one of the few in the White House Press Corps who will ask these kinds of tough questions, but he is always treated with disdain and disrespect by this clown of a Press Secretary.

This is a big deal because that phrase – “by their Creator” – makes an enormous difference. Without it, it is easy to believe that our rights and our liberty are creations of man, and can be given or taken away by the whims of Government. But if we have been endowed by the Creator with the rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” then it is the prerogative of no man or Government to seize or abridge those rights – not even Barack Obama. Obama’s philosophy of Government is much more comfortable without “by their Creator.” But like it or not, it is there – and always will be – in the Declaration of Independence.


Obama Omits “Creator” From Declaration of Independence For Third Time

The Blaze

During a speech Monday, President Barack Obama once again omitted the Declaration of Independence‘s mention of man’s “Creator” as the source of his “unalienable rights.” While delivering remarks at a dinner fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) in Rockville, Md., President Obama spoke about what he called the “essence” of the upcoming midterm election:

As wonderful as the land is here in the United States, as much as we have been blessed by the bounty of this magnificent continent that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, what makes this place special is not something physical. It has to do with this idea that was started by 13 colonies that decided to throw off the yoke of an empire, and said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

This isn’t the first time the president has selectively edited the Declaration in not acknowledging the role of God in bestowing these rights upon man. During a Sept. 15 speech before the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s Annual Awards Gala, the president omitted the religious reference, but the White House dismissed criticism, saying that Obama “went off script and adlibbed when he made that mistake.”

But just a week later, the President made the exact same “mistake” speaking during another fundraiser, this time in New York City.


Wild Thing's comment.......

It is intentional!!!!!

This was the comment I left at the YouTube page from the video. Not sure if it will stay there or not. I noticed the page belongs to Barack Obama and move on has done the stupid video. hahaha

Pathetic! I am so looking forward to the day these two low class POS are done being in power and their destroying our country. My gawd she can't even dress like a First Lady. No tie on Obama too. It is like they are trying to dress down to talk to the little people, can't the idiots that voted for Obama see how little he respects them. sheesh Hey Michelle stop getting sweaters that are way too small, you look like a slob.

If there was a model for the Anti-Christ obama would fit the mold. Gibbs doesn't answer the question, of course, but tries to change the subject with a non-answer. But even his answer is a lie, obama does not believe in the Constitution nor the Declaration of Independence.

If obama believed in the Constitution then why is he suing Arizona for defending its citizens and trying to encourage other countries to sign on to his lawsuit.

Why does Obama leave out Creator? Simple. The Creator of our founding fathers is the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Obama doesn't believe in the Creator of our Founders.

obama leaves out "Creator" just like he refuses to salute or honor the National Anthem. obama is a Marxist and a muslim and he hates traditional America. His dislike is blatantly obvious to those who watch or listen. He gets by with it because the leftist MSM covers up for him. On Nov 2 we will find out how many Americans notice these obama characteristics.

Heck...Obama thinks he's the son of the creator and using the term "dad" in his speeches would be awkward. "...endowed by my dad..." yup, sounds funny to me. Geez...when you make a mistake that is noticed by many people you take steps not to make the same mistake again. When you do it three times, it ain't a mistake, it's by design. Remember, he hates the Bible- and gun-holding conservatives and by acknowledging a Creator he only strengthens the arguements of those of us who are not marxists.

The man asking the question of the press secretary is Lester Kinsolving, currently White House correspondent for World Net Daily.

He's old school press, and has been a mainstay in the White House press corps since the 1970's.

A former Episcopalian priest, he used to wear his priest's collar to presidential press conferences.

His question regarding the omission of the Declaration of Independence is so like him. Always look forward to his questioning and he's a joy to listen to.

He's host of a nightly radio talk show in Baltimore on WCBM.

Wish we had more American press today like old Les.
